BBC Symphony Orchestra
Josep Pons
conductor
Nora Gubisch soprano

French soprano Nora Gubisch can trace her ancestry right back to Ravel’s close friend Ricardo Viñes, and her lustrous voice and idiomatic style make her the ideal soloist for his ravishing orchestral songs, Shéhérazade. We are treated to Schreker’s irridescent overture for large orchestra and two poignant elegies by Busoni and Ravel before being plunged into the seething creative whirl of Schoenberg’s masterpiece, the Chamber Symphony No 1.

The concert finishes at approximately 9.15pm
